I should probably have learned by now that if a recipe only calls for four figs, you can probably leave them out. But, of course, I haven't-- so I have been searching for new fig recipes lately.
Last week I stumbled upon a recipe for a "Raspberry-and-Fig Cake" in this month's Food&Wine. The recipe called for fresh figs, but I used dried and soaked ones, since I had them. I am not so sure I am a fan of figs in my cake --- but man, those raspberries and the hint of lime were good!
So, I give you:
Raspberry and Fig Cake
or just, Raspberry Lime Cake
